NBA Rumors: Markieff, Marcus Morris want to play on same team for entire careers

It’s not often that family gets together in sports, at least not on the professional level, so whenever there are brothers or a father and son duo connected to the same sport at the same time, it’s a cool story to hear.

Twin brothers Markieff and Marcus Morris have taken the story to another level though as not only do both play in the NBA but they both now play for the same team in the Phoenix Suns. Drafted in the same year a pick apart from one another, the Morris twins will soon be entering free agency and that means they could get split up again.

According to Philly.com, the Morris twins aren’t going to force teams to sign both of them this upcoming free agency but that’s the basic idea.

The twins aren’t necessarily tied together during free agency. They haven’t yet contemplated specific destinations and said they haven’t considered a return to Philadelphia. Marcus said they would be willing to negotiate separately if the need arises, but the top priority is to make teams eager to sign both players.

It’s not going to be an easy feat, but the twins wanting to play together shows just how tight their family is and the success of the Suns last season means that Phoenix might want to keep the family together beyond the 2014-15 season.
